  1. Whatever it is, the last para states that those tours happening is binding on the Big Three model. Since Big Three itself is now defunct, any agreement binding on the Big Three model should follow suit. This is my layman's understanding of the letter. Irrespective, what leverage do the Paks honestly have?
  2. Dhoni: when will the torture end???

    Two fold: 1. To remind forum members that whether he deserves to or not, MS will play the 2019 WC, barring any injury. Very similar to how Kapil Dev hung around even after the 92 WC, despite being way past his prime. Kohli-Shastri-selectors have already decided this and, to my eyes at least, it is quite apparent that MS is, practically speaking, still the ODI and T20 captain. Kohli is just there to take some heat until post 2019. 2. Offering suggestions, to those motivated enough, to try and prevent point 1 from happening. Look, it's an open secret that MS makes the forum buzz these days. I'm just chipping in with my two cents.
  3. Haven't had a thread as entertaining as this for a while on ICF. Thanks @Malcolm Merlyn for starting this beaut.
  4. Dhoni: when will the torture end???

    No amount of hyperventilating on ICF will change the fact that Dhoni will play the 2019 WC if he is fit. If you'll want him out of the team, there are two realistic options. Either pray to the almighty that he is unfit for the WC otherwise take out a supari in his name to injure him just before the WC.
  5. VVS's 281 and Kapil's 175 I agree. In T20s, I would put Samuels' 78 in the 2012 T20 WC final as the best. Very clutch innings in a very difficult match situation.
  6. Virat Kohli v AB de Villiers - who is better ODI batsman?

    Yes. Team rankings are important as they determine whether you'll qualify for the WC directly or through qualifiers in LOIs and in Tests, it's all about the rankings. I still want to know what @Trichromatic means by "meaningless bilaterals". He uses it as a criterion for his analysis.
  7. Virat Kohli v AB de Villiers - who is better ODI batsman?

    Can you define what "meaningful bilaterals" and "meaningless bilaterals" are? 70% cricket that is played is basically bilateral cricket. If you are disregarding bilateral cricket as being meaningless, then by your logic, Don Bradman's whole career was meaningless.
  8. Happy B’day to the World Cup 2011 Hero Gambhir

    One of the most underrated players vs spin.
  9. In your opinion, is that good or bad? I don't think Umesh has a long term future in LOIs but he can play tests for another 3-4 years as he is really fit. Should focus on the longer format. Shami will have to manage his workload and pick which Ranji games he plays.
  10. You know what's a bigger farce? The alternatives to MS & DK. Pappu, Qtiyappa, N. Ojha, Saha, Jadhav Samson and Pant are too inexperienced.
  11. I might be in the minority here, but I'm fine with Shami and Umesh being dropped. They are our first choice pacers in Tests so I'd rather they rest and prepare for the upcoming Test series'. Rahul being dropped is disappointing. Should be there in place of Manish Pandey I feel. Dinesh Karthik is our contingency plan for the 2019 WC if Dhoni gets injured so his inclusion is not surprising. Selectors have made up their mind.
  12. No one killed Aarushi Talwar!

    I've always felt the same. The way the investigation was messed up seemed/seems way too convenient for my liking. I don't think it was an honor killing even though circumstances can definitely make us believe that it was a crime of passion. I personally suspect that there is a political angle involved. Probably some shady business affair that Aarushi and Hemraj had unearthed (don't know the specifics but the Talwars were influential enough) and hence they were both liquidated. To me, what this case's conclusion binds on is knowing once and for all if the Noida police intentionally messed up/covered up the investigation or if it was just desi incompetence or both (one leading to the other). Either way, the odds of the truth being revealed are miniscule.
  13. About time. Will retire as a cult figure in Indian cricket with a decent trophy cabinet to boot. The cult was started on ICF even before it went mainstream
  14. Axcellent Fightback by Pakistan

    A little too late for 
  15. Ha ha ha ha ha ha!!! Let's all laugh at the padosis :)
